This time of uncertainty and quarantine can be trying on families. We are open for business remotely to assist with all of your family law needs.
As the rapid spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact the global community, Hooper & Jacobs has developed a Coronavirus protocol. We are able to deliver our high quality services to you while also maintaining compliance with Governor Hogan’s Orders and the recommendations of the CDC. So that we can do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19, our attorneys are providing services remotely. All meetings will take place via telephone conference, e-mail and online platforms. Our highest priority is the well-being of our team, clients and community. We continue to implement measures to reduce the risk of workplace transmission of the virus to ensure the health and safety of our entire community.
We are in contact with the Maryland Judiciary to remain informed as to court operations so we can best assist clients and continue to manage each client file. For a better understanding of the status of court operations and the impact on you matter, contact one of our attorneys.
Hooper & Jacobs offers methods to resolve your family matters efficiently outside of Court. Please contact us to discuss Mediation, Collaborative Divorce, Parent Coordination, Neutral Case Evaluation and other forms of alternate dispute resolution, all of which can be performed remotely.
During this global crisis issues may arise regarding your children and the impact of the pandemic on your current custody order or co-parenting and the safety of yourself or your children. You may experience financial hardship making compliance with support obligations difficult. The manner in which any of these issues is handled can have implications on their ultimate resolution. We are here to answer your questions.
During office hours, your telephone calls will be received. However, the best way to communicate with us at this time is email. You can contact Ilene Glickman at Ilene@lawhj.com or Richard Jacobs at Richard@lawhj.com. We will not have immediate access to our office voicemail.
